#1 Grandson

Well, today is a sad day of sorts.
It is my last post on the

The blog is closing down for the time being after 
5 years of wonderful blog challenges.
The owner Joanne needs a much needed break,
something I am sure we can all understand.
I wish her the very best and want to thank her
from the bottom of my heart for having me on board!

So, the last challenge is  'NUMBERS' and is being sponsored by
and I chose the adorable image

Now before you all go and tell me what a wonderful job of
coloring I did (lol), let me tell you this comes with
a pre-colored image and that is what I used,
beautiful isn't it?
I did however, add green glitter pen
to the dots on the frog and the dragonflies as well.

I had a piece of SU Night of Navy card stock
left on my table from yesterdays post and
thought it to be the perfect base for my card.

I have found that after discovering the Recollections
110# card stock at Michael's (it comes in black, white & cream)
I am neglecting all my pretty SU card stocks,
so it seemed pretty good to use this one!

I embossed a Gable Green card stock
with the cutest 'bumpy'  EB folder from SU
called Decor Dots.
It just reminded me of warts on a!

My 'number' sentiment is computer generated .

I added a last piece of gingham ribbon scrap
and a button onto that.

I do hope you will join us for our very last
challenge at Chocolate, Coffee & Cards...see you there!

Well, I was all ready to tell you what an awesome job you did of coloring... But, hey, you did an awesome job of picking the image and adding glitter, ribbon, and button. And that frog spot-like embossing folder is pretty awesome, too. Really a cute card!

What a great card Diane! Wonderful image and I love that you added you own little touches to it. A perfect Summer scene! And, you used a scrap of ribbon - which does mean you could enter this into the Snippets Playground! I'm fairly relaxed about a little bit of back linking, more so when I know the person concerned!
